Description

The TRIcrimp® crimping tool was exclusively designed to provide a positive crimp on the 15, 30 & 45 amp contacts manufactured by Anderson Power Products for the Powerpole® line of products. It has the following features.

  • Crimps all three sizes of Powerpole® contacts; 15, 30 and 45 amp
  • Built-in contact positioner that holds the contact during crimping
  • Ratchet mechanism assures proper crimps every time
  • Far faster and better than soldering
  • Provides the highest strength and the lowest resistance connections possible
  • Dimensions: 7.75" X 3" X 1.5"
  • Weight: 20 ounces
  • High Contact retention force

Contacts & Jaw Position

The 3 contacts have different amp ratings:

  • 15 Amp (SKU: 1332) is designed to receive 16, 18 and 20 gauge wire.
  • 30 Amp (SKU: 1331) is designed to receive 12, 14 gauge wire.
  • 45 Amp (SKU: 261G2) is designed to receive 10 gauge wire.

The contact size corresponds to the position marking on the die. The 15 amp contact goes into the 15 amp position, the 30 amp into the 30 position, and 45 amp into the 45 position.

Assembly Instructions 15 & 30 Amp

To crimp the 15 & 30 amp contacts it is recommended that you insert the wire into the contact prior to inserting them into the tool. Then, with the flat side of the contact down, insert the contact tip into the proper slot for crimping.

Squeeze the ratchet handle until the ratchet mechanism releases. Do not over crimp by squeezing the handles together until they touch, it is possible to break the die.

Assembly Instructions 45 Amp

To crimp the 45 amp contact it is recommended that you position the tip of the 45 amp contact into the 45 amp position slot before the wire is inserted. Make sure the contact is properly positioned with the U (open contact) facing up. If the contact is lying sideways you may not obtain a proper crimp. Then, insert your wire into the inserted contact.

Squeeze the ratchet handle until the ratchet mechanism releases. Do not over crimp by squeezing the handles together until they touch, it is possible to break the die.

best crimp tool I have ever used !
By from TwinCities , MN

this is the best crimp tool I have ever used. the only thing I wish it came with a hand book showing what Die's are for each connector. each one is numbered so a list of what goes with what would be nice ! I would tape it to the inside of the storage box lid . Breeze

The only tool for the job
By from Redding Ca

I've been crimping connectors using all sorts of means. None of them resulted in a satisfactory or "professional" job. Ordered the optional dies to do coax connectors. You won't be disappointed.

Save $5 and buy the TriCromp Pro now
By from Southern California

Yes, this crimper is every bit as good as everyone says. After soldering and plier crimping Power Pole connectors on an as-needed basis for years, I finally broke down and picked this up. As quickly as I could get the Power Pole connectors shipped to me, all mt 13.8V equipment sprouted new connectors. Fast and easy, effectively impossible to use wrong. However, once you buy this crimper, you'll want something better for all your crimping needs and will eventually come back and buy the die set and case. Save yourself the extra shipping and the $5 difference and just buy the TriCrimp Pro set now. You won't regret it.

Good tool
By from Virginia

Have been using the crimper and die set in the ham shack and in the field for varoius ham activies as well as installing friends mobiles for a year and a half. In regular use this tool has held up well, it is easy to use changeing of the dies is not bad after some break in. Fists teh most common power connectors and many coax connectors for crimping. I recomend this if you are going to work with power and or coax cables.

Super high quality
By from Columbus, OH

I was amazed at the quality of this crimper - I thought about whether I wanted to spend the extra money for this ratcheting crimper as compared to the less expensive pliers type. I usually am happiest when I get the best so I bought the better unit. The instant I opened the package I was sold - this is actually VERY inexpensive given its super heavy-duty construction. It will last a life time - it a professional-grade unit all the way. By the way, if you don't get the full set of extra jaws, buy the separate fitted case - it too is super nice. I am very happy with the purchase.

works like a charm
By from florida

I tried connecting the power poles without this tool with little success and much frustration. This tool is Precisely the tool for the job. If you are going to be making more than 1 or 2 connections, then you will greatly benefit from this tool!

Anderson Powerpole Crimper
By from Racine WI

I've been soldering these Anderson Power pole connectors for years, (The company I worked for used them by the thousands, every month) I finally decided to buy the crimper from powerwerx. It's not as nice as the commercial duty crimpers at work, but these commercial duty crimpers are on the order of $1000 each. At my current use rate of several power pole terminals a week or so, this tool will likely last decades.

Excellent applications for R/C
By from Ohio

After years of using Deans, EC3/EC5, hard-wiring, etc., I tried the no-solder solution with Anderson Powerpoles and I will never go back. No more lead, fumes, flux, or soldering irons. This crimp tool is a piece of cake to use and takes a fraction of the time that soldering does, and it's virtually fool-proof. I opened the box yesterday and converted 2 LiPo's, 2 ESCs, and my charger all over to powerpoles. It took less than 15 minutes and each crimp succeeded on the first attempt. Crimping creates a better mechanical AND a better electrical connection than soldering does, no matter how well you think you solder.

No Nonsense -- very reliable crimps
By from Louisiana

I started using regular hand crimpers which was a disaster, then I started soldering all my Andersons, which isnt bad but takes time and is inconvenient in the field. I finally broke down and bought this crimper and Im still kicking myself in the rear for not doing it earlier. This crimper will make a very reliable and firm crimp along the full length of the wire insertion barrel. Just make sure to insert the pin so that it rolls into and digs into the stripped wire that was inserted. Great low resistance connection. Just add a little silicon grease when you're done and it is good to go almost anywhere. Im converting my whole operation over to Anderson connectors.

Easy 1-2-3 your done
By from Monticello, Iowa

Awesome tool, can't crimp improperly and excellent leverage. Strip wire, place crimp connector on end and insert into tool that has depth gage and crimp, that’s it. All that’s left is to snap into Power Pole and you’re done. Fool proof, great investment great tool great connectors. W1JCM

An absolute *must have*
By from Stephenville, TX USA

One of the most important factors in crimping PowerPoles is ensuring that the crimp does not extend beyond the width of the contact blade. That's almost impossible to do consistently with standard crimpers. The TRIcrimp makes perfect crimps every time (regardless of contact amp rating) and makes PowerPole assembly almost a "no-brainer." If you assemble PowerPoles more than twice a year, you need this tool. When mine isn't on the bench working, it's in my "GO" kit along with a stock of housings and contacts, ready to deploy to any emergency. Larry D. Barr, K5WLF ARES AEC, Erath Co.

A must have tool if you use Powerpoles
By from Pensacola, FL

As a broadcast engineer, I use a many crimp tools, and this is a quality tool, well worth the price. Soldering stranded wire, in effect, makes it a solid conductor, right where is flexes the most, making it likely to break. Crimping avoids this problem, and makes a reliable connection. No club should be without one.

Fantistaic Tool
By from Norwich, New York

Just the tool for crimping the Anderson 15amp to 45 amp contacts. I have only made one bad crimp, that was the first one, forgot to read the instructions. All others since then have been perfect.
